Title: Snack Bar Mom (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: 1950s color film that opens with announcer asking a mom why she should cook for the family when they can be fed at the drive-in snack bar. Next is a boy walking down the food bar with a pizza box. A shot of two prepared hot dogs with extras, pizza, coffee, sodas, then shots of the family eating their food (chicken?) in an open convertible at the drive-in. No music
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.

Why cook? Drive-ins can do it for you!
A nice, short ad appealing to 50's housewives in hopes they'll convince the husband to get out of the house so they can relax and not have to cook for a change.

The food looks both disgusting and delicious. I love it.
If I get a time-machine, I'm visiting one of those places!

It looks like someone took a mad dump on two buns.
